    Yeah, this was posted in the eBay section previously. He's dreaming too. He needs to break that collection of his up. Pure laziness on his part.

    Yea, hopefully I can purchase a couple of items from him every two weeks! LOL!
    He should mark something like, "willing to sell items separately".
    Like I said, wish me luck!

    With a price like that, he's probably not that interested in selling. He's just HOPING someone bites. Problem is, his collection is a mishmash of TFs, Anime girls and Gundam.

    I'd still like to see it in person. Maybe he'll have something that's on my list. :D

    What are you looking for? He's got mostly current stuff (1996 onward).

    EDIT: He has several US Masterpiece Starscreams. I think like 4 or 5.

    I very much doubt he's going to show it to you.

    If I had an empty apartment filled with stuff, I know I wouldn't be showing it off to random people off the internet. That's just asking to get robbed.

    Unless there was some crazy variant out there that I'm not aware of, he has a photo of a Classics Ultra Magnus/Skywarp box that has Prime & Starscream in there instead.

    He probably just put the Prime and Starscream in that box. That's my guess. If you browse the pics, you will see lots of empty boxes just lying around.

    We'll see what happens. As far as what I'm looking for, just look at my want-list.
    I can't imagine renting an apartment for just a collection! Wonder where in the Springs he's located.

    Dang this guy just buys EVERYTHING. I mean that's not collecting, that's hoarding. I mean for your TOYS to have their own appartment is Crazy. I have enough to fill two full size bedrooms, however this is beyond me. When I lived at home my Parents allowed me to have two bedrooms for my stuff, now my place is so small it's all basically in storage.

    Got a message back from the seller. This is what he responded with:

    Yeah, sorry about this but I only show it to people that want to but it all or my familys/friends. I sold most of my G1 a long time ago, what every is in the pics is all the G1 I has lift. Anyway I'm thinking about opening a toy store here in the Springs.

    So, wonder when that'll happen. But doesn't sound like he'll have anything I'm looking for anyway.

    Sounds like a moron with too much money IMHO. As for opening a toy store, I say good luck with that. Takes more than a large collection to start a business like that.

    Yea, maybe he should take a bunch to a flea-market or something and sell bit's at a time.

    Yeah....as someone who just had to negotiate the lease for my own store he'd be MUCH better off selling it online, or even trying to lower his expectations and sell to a dealer...all teh money he'll spend on rent, utilities, and fixturing will eat the heck out of how much $$$ he can actually make if he only wants to use the shop to sell this collection.

    Holy..., looking at the future I just want to end up having a slightly larger room for the collection I have now when I move so I can fit no more than a 1000 in there if anything. Even now I have no room for all my stuff in my bedroom, but seriously it can't be pleasant with having your tfs take up all the room in your house =/
